The Bible Study group of Our Lady of Good Help and St. Theresa’s parishes meets on the third Thursday of the month at 7:00pm in the St. Theresa’s church hall. We normally adjourn for the summer months of June, July and August. The discussion questions for each evening are sent out on the preceding Sunday via email to our email list.
The evening is spent in a group discussion of each question, exploring various commentaries and relating personal experiences and knowledge. This enables participation by any level of Biblical interest from novice to advanced. No one is forced to participate and each one is free to join in or ask any questions.
Many people sign up on the list for the questions even though they may be unable to attend the session. We even have one participant in the State of Washington!
Over the past few years we have studied the Gospel of Luke, the Book of Revelation, Genesis, Acts of the Apostles, St. Paul’s Letter to the Romans and the Book of Psalms. We are currently studying the Gospel of Mark and are debating which book we will tackle next.
Everyone is welcome and we encourage our participants to bring a guest, even if they just want to observe and see how we learn. Our attendance fluctuates from five or six to over twenty five.
For more information, or to be added to the email list, send an email to Deacon Rick Lapierre at email@example.com. If you do not have access to email call the Parish Office at (401) 568-8280 and we will make arrangements to get the questions to you.
The Our Lady of Good Help/St. Theresa’s Bible Study will begin our 2018-2019 season on Thursday 9/20/2018 at 7:00pm in the St. Theresa’s Church Hall. We will be continuing our study of Mark’s gospel with Chapter 11. I’ve also included Chapter 12 in case we finish Chapter 11 too quickly. Since we are coming to the end of the Gospel of Mark it is not too early to start thinking of our next book of the Bible. Give it some thought and pray about it and we will begin discussing what we will tackle next. Thank you again for being a part of this vibrant ministry in our parish and please invite anyone else who may be interested in our discussions. I know that our coming together to study and to pray has been a tremendous boost to my own understanding of God’s plan for my life as revealed in Sacred Scripture. Hope to see many of you next Thursday. God bless.
